Maldives Metal band NOTHNEGAL made their mark among the local death metal fans when they first appeared in 2006. They gained international recognition with the release of their first EP ‘Antidote of Realism’. The EP was released in 2009 with the help of producer Anssi Kippo who is known for his work with CHILDREN OF BODOM and NORTHER. The positive reaction from the EP inspired their first video clip for the song "Web of Deceit".

Nothnegal’s line-up was completed in April 2009, with American drummer Kevin Talley (DÅÅTH, ex-CHIMAIRA, ex-DYING FETUS, ex-MISERY INDEX) and Finnish keyboard player Marco Sneck (KALMAH, POISONBLACK) joining NOTHNEGAL as official members. The band has since then went on and toured Europe covering 13 countries and 25 cities in 2010.

Signed with Season of Mist/ EMI, their debut album “Decadence” is complete and will be released internationally on the 20th of January 2012. The album is already getting positive reviews internationally and is now available for pre ordering in all the major record stores around the world. They will be touring India supporting the Swedish Grammy winning band – OPETH and German band SUIDAKRA.

The Swedish heavy metal band from Stockholm was formed in 1990. Now with 10 successful albums, their last album Heritage was released in September 2011. Opeth didn’t make much live appearances until their first world tour in 2001, when they released their fifth album ‘Blackwater park’.

In their early works the lengthy compositions incorporate progressive, folks, blues and jazz as well as black and death metal. Many tracks use acoustic passages with dynamic shifts with both death growls and clean vocals. Opeth has released ten studio albums, three live DVDs, three live albums (two in conjunction with DVDs), and two boxsets. Opeth experienced major American commercial success in 2008 with the release of their ninth studio album, Watershed, which peaked at number twenty-three on the Billboard 200, and topped the Finnish albums chart in its first week of release.
